It's not recommended and is a known cause of getting the endpoints out of sync. It's easy to fix and as long as you hold the button in at the end of a sycle you are resetting the endpoints.
However if you deploy partially, the retract partially, then deploy partially you eventually will get your slide coming in crooked. I can force it to happen on mine. Once I understood how the Hall sensors worked, it began to make sense. One of my slides is more sensitive to the issue than the other as it tends to coast if you take your hand off the button.
Once I understood the limitations of the mechanism and how to deal with the situation Ive had no issues and think they function as well as any other slide mechanism I've used.
